Translations from English and Spanish into German - since 2014
I help businesses communicate effectively with their German target audience by providing compelling translations from English and Spanish into German. My translations are texts in their own right which carry all the original meaning while sounding as natural in German as they do in English or Spanish. I translate with the German target audience in mind and adapt the text where necessary to ensure that the translation is as effective as the original text.
Business Translation - Transcreation - Literary Translation
I provide translation services in the fields of tourism, corporate communications, marketing and education/training. I also offer transcreation - translation plus adaptation of the German text in line with a client briefing - for image-sensitive text types. And I am an experienced literary translator.

Cultural awarenessI translate with the German target audience in mind and adapt the text where necessary to ensure that the translation is as effective as the original text. And to avoid misunderstandings.
Expertise and researchA text is only convincing if the content is correct. I only translate in areas I am familiar with and consider it part of my work to check the facts.
